Deontay Wilder vs. Nicolai Firtha

Oh come on! You don’t have to be Nostradamus to predict the end result of this match. Nicolai Firtha is no challenge for the hard hitting Deontay Wilder. The Bronze Bomber is superior to Firtha in every way. I call this bout a third-round knockout in favor of Wilder.

Prediction: Wilder

In the opening bout of the fight, we’ll see Nicolai Firtha playing the part of sacrificial lamb to Golden Boy Promotions’ Deontay Wilder. It’s simple really, just another body to stack on Wilder’s win column and sadly another body with a double-digit losing record. I see Wilder playing with the poorly mismatched Firtha before the execution in the second round of this 10-round bout.

Prediction: Wilder

I love Wilder. He is an outgoing, straight forward, take no bullshit kind of guy. He has huge respect for Firtha, but stated he is taking him out and his record will be 30-0, 30 KOs. I believe it, but how many rounds will Firtha last? Firtha has been in with some good Heavyweights, but how long can he take Wilder’s right hook? Answer; 5 rounds, which will be good for Wilder as he will get his KO and build the number of rounds he fights.

Prediction: Wilder

I know this is a stay busy fight, but I need to start seeing Wilder step up his competition. This fight doesn’t deserve to be on television. Not much analysis needed here.

Prediction: Wilder


Alex Burgos, Editor in Chief

Is the Deontay Wilder hype machine real? This isn’t the fight where we find out. Wilder will make quick work of Firtha. The question we’ll have after this fight is; who’s next?

Prediction: Wilder
